Missing British columnist and doctor’s body found on Greek island: Report

Greek authorities have reportedly confirmed that they have found the body of Dr Michael Mosley on the Greek resort island of Symi after a five-day search. Daily Mail.

Mosley’s body was reportedly found on rocks along Agia Marina after a massive search led by emergency services. The 67-year-old Daily Mail columnist was last seen in the village of Pedi before being discovered.

“I am truly saddened by the loss of my wonderful, funny, kind and intelligent husband, Michael. We had an incredibly fortunate life together.”

Mosley, a prominent British doctor who appeared regularly on television, was reportedly visiting the Greek coast of Agios Nikolaos with friends on Wednesday before going for a walk alone in the centre of the island.

“Michael was an adventurous man, and that was one of the things that made him so special,” his wife, Dr. Claire Bailey Mosley, said. “I am heartbroken to lose my wonderful, funny, kind and intelligent husband, Michael. We had an incredibly fortunate life together. We loved each other very much and were so happy together.”

Claire said her husband took a wrong turn while hiking and collapsed in a secluded area. CBS News.

Symi’s mayor, Eleftherios Papakalodukas, said the body was discovered while teams were searching the area with cameras, and a police source said the person had been dead for “several days.” BBC.

Mosley was eventually found near a fence, holding an umbrella, and another report said the body was discovered by the bar manager, who was with journalists, after the island’s mayor “saw something” near the bar’s fence.

“They called me and said, ‘You know what, we saw something from a distance, can you go and check it out?'” said Ilias Tsavaris, manager of a bar in Agia Marina.

“So I walked closer and saw what appeared to be a body.”

One of the officers who was part of the team searching for Mosley’s body reportedly broke his leg during the search. After Mosley’s body was discovered, it was sent to the coroner for examination.

Authorities said they needed to rule out the possibility that Mosley’s death was the result of foul play.

The search was completed after five days of searching in sweltering heat, and included the use of dogs, helicopters, firefighters, drones, local residents and police officers from Symi.
